Governors State University Library. houses the University Archives. One of our special collections is The Creative Woman, a quarterly feminist journal produced at Governors State University from 1977-1992. Issues were comprised of articles, poetry, verse, biographical sketches, essays, non-fiction, fiction, book review, photography, and original graphics. The content featured the work of GSU faculty, staff, and others on a wide variety of topics of interest to women. Themed issues included women’s involvement in science, religion, business, energy, politics, and psychology; a look at the lives of Russian women, Chinese women, American Indian women, lesbians, and women coping with disabilities.

The Creative Woman was a unique Illinois contribution to herstory and the feminist movement in America and abroad. The intent of the journal's contributors can be summarized in this quote from the first issue: "We are creative individuals and that creativity has been ignored. With this thought in mind, we decided to create a vehicle for women everywhere to express their own forms of creativity."

The publication was a success, transforming over fifteen years from an initial typewritten newsletter of ten pages to a professionally printed journal of fifty-six pages. Find out more about this unique publication at The Creative Woman website
